Manuel, Loli, Luis, Mamen, Yolanda, Andrés and Rubén all get their questions answered and I’ll bring you up to date with what’s been happening in our neck of the woods in this week’s podcast.
Reza’s currently in Belfast with his family.
I’ve just got back from my holiday in Scotland. I went there for a reunion of family and friends.
Reza had COVID and he’s also been very busy at the end of the academic year so we were not able to record podcasts for the summer.
There will be a podcast every week until I can record with Reza again.
